You are not prepared.
These words will greet you when you load up Velocibox on your PS4 and PS Vita. You think you have the twitch reflexes to keep up with this madness?
Velocibox is the crown jewel of endless runners. The gameplay is straightforward, but within seconds you’ll realize you’ve met your match. Go ahead: try to memorize the patterns, position yourself properly, and time your movements to get through each level. Do your best to maneuver through the dynamic obstacles that stand between you and victory. Flip, dodge, and twist to collect cubes in order to advance further into the don’t-blink-or-you-die insanity of Velocibox.
This diabolical creation from Shawn Beck Games and LOOT Interactive will cause you to uncontrollably scream, yell, and swear at the top of your lungs. Cringe-worthy sounds that make you think twice about whether or not Velocibox is safe for your sanity, your blood pressure, and your nervous system.
Velocibox has that “Just one more round!” level of addiction. You’ll be attacking this game for days. Weeks. Months. Because unless you have the reflexes of a Formula One driver, you will experience your fair share of defeat. But just when you think you can’t stand to hear, “Level One: Begin…Game Over” round after round after round, and you contemplate giving up, something glorious happens: you finish level one.
The overwhelming endorphin rush that takes place the first time you conquer level one is almost too good for words. It is glorious.
Savor this feeling. Remember it well. It will last exactly 2.3 seconds — because now you come face-to-face with the monster of never-ending pain that is level two.
If self-punishment is what you’re into (no judging here), than we dare you to try your hand at what might be one of the most difficult Gold Trophies in the history of PlayStation: in Ranked mode, successfully make it through levels one through nine… in a single run.
To give some idea of just how ridiculously hard that Trophy is: in all the months of developing and testing this game, we’ve only see one person even come close to making it through. And should we even talk about how to unlock Super Velocibox…?
Yup, just when you thought you had it all figured out, there’s an even more glorious, insane, hair-on-fire challenge ready to make your acquaintance: Super Velocibox. Test your skills, your reflexes, and your ability to persevere in the face of an unyielding challenge. Be one with the Box!
